My quarterly trips as a patient at Mayo feel like going home thanks to the service and atmosphere of this hotel. The old traditional hotel with its somewhat smaller rooms looks like it belongs in NYC. It is very very clean and well maintained. Service is sincere and caring. At checkout today, a front of the house manager casually approached...

Staff is professional, rooms are antiquated (especially, the bathroom in particular has an institutional feel, think hospital room or school lavatory). Price charged for the room is high for what you get. I had to walk a two blocks carrying my luggage because the onsite parking ramp was full. I never received a receipt for my stay. When I checked...

Nice hotel with shops, grill, and coffee place inside. Nice to be able to walk to various restaurants, activities downtown. Room was smaller, but was quiet and comfortable. After attending a play and eating supper out, came back to watch the news or cable, but the TV wouldn't work...would power on, but couldn't get a picture or channels.

I had decided to just stay in the economy room (which is plenty big enough) however the room was super hot, the bed was uncomfortable, and kind of dirty. I think that even though it was the "economy" room it should still have the same standards of cleaning & maintenance as any other room, and if leaving the toilet dirty...

Beth- Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed the convenient location to Mayo. I am sorry that your experience with your room did not meet your expectations.

For location....5 stars with immediate access to Mayo Clinic, easy parking solution and surprisingly good room service food when supporting a patient pre and post surgery. Please update the bathrooms, the faucets, the door that years of steam has eroded the sink with no place to put anything. Bed is very adequate, side chairs are comfortable. Service attitude is positive...

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. I apologize for the dissatisfaction you experienced. I will look into the issues with the phones, which were recently upgraded hotel-wide. I will have our maintenance service look into the issues you noted in the bathroom. Thank you again for providing this valuable feedback! Sincerely, Maria N.

This is probably partly my fault. I was about to go to the shower when I received a text I had to respond, so I made the mistake of lying prone on the bed sheets without pants on. About roughly a week later I started to itch. I thought the weather was just too dry and had been putting lotion...
